“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men,
they create for themselves in the course of time,
a legal system that authorizes it,
and a moral code that glorifies it.”

Brain Surveillance And Escaping The Corporate World by Computing Forever (33:40)

Brain Surveillance And Escaping The Corporate World by Computing Forever (33:40)

This Time It’s Different
Neither we nor our allies are prepared to fight all-out war with Russia, regionally or globally.
Until it decided to confront Moscow with an existential military threat in Ukraine, Washington confined the use of American military power to conflicts that Americans could afford to lose, wars with weak opponents in the developing world from Saigon to Baghdad that did not present an existential threat to U.S. forces or American territory. This time—a proxy war with Russia—is different. Contrary to early Beltway hopes and expectations, Russia neither collapsed internally nor capitulated to the collective West’s demands for regime change in Moscow. Washington underestimated Russia’s societal cohesion, its latent military potential, and its relative immunity to Western economic sanctions. As a result, Washington’s proxy war against Russia is failing. U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin was unusually candid about the situation in Ukraine when he told the allies in Germany at Ramstein Air Base on January 20, “We have a window of opportunity here, between now and the spring,” admitting, “That’s not a long time.” Alexei Arestovich, President Zelensky’s recently fired advisor and unofficial “Spinmeister,” was more direct. He expressed his own doubts that Ukraine can win its war with Russia and he now questions whether Ukraine will even survive the war. Ukrainian losses—at least 150,000 dead including 35,000 missing in action and presumed dead—have fatally weakened Ukrainian forces resulting in a fragile Ukrainian defensive posture that will likely shatter under the crushing weight of attacking Russian forces in the next few weeks.

Are You Ready For “Brain Transparency” And AI Reading Your Mind?
The WEF and “The Battle For Your Brain”
The WEF’s annual meeting in Davos held a very important and exciting seminar discussing “Brain Transparency.” It featured new but working technology that allows scanning of the human brain via wearable devices (no electrodes needed). Such scans allow AI-enabled computers to read and interpret the wearer’s state of mind by instantly understanding recorded brain waves. The devices they are discussing already exist. Artificial intelligence systems paired with such devices allow unprecedented insight into the mental and emotional state of the wearer.

Author Martin Sandler Says Mossad May Have Assassinated JFK
Martin Sandler, editor of “The Letters of John F. Kennedy,” discussed the possibility that Israel’s Mossad was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy during a book talk at the John F. Kennedy Museum in Hyannis, Massachusetts on November 6, 2013. Sandler is an award-winning author of numerous popular books and textbooks on American history. He has taught at the University of Massachusetts and Smith College. Sandler’s full Hyannis talk was broadcast on C-SPAN’s Book TV; the segment on the JFK assassination is on C-SPAN here. Author Michael Collins Piper discusses this subject in his book “Final judgment : The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy,” available on Archive.org, Amazon, and in some libraries.

Fundamentals Of Voluntaryism
Voluntaryism is the doctrine that relations among people should be by mutual consent, or not at all. It represents a means, an end, and an insight. Voluntaryism does not argue for the specific form that voluntary arrangements will take; only that force be abandoned so that individuals in society may flourish. As it is the means which determine the end, the goal of an all voluntary society must be sought voluntarily. People cannot be coerced into freedom. Hence, the use of the free market, education, persuasion, and non-violent resistance as the primary ways to change people’s ideas about the State. The voluntaryist insight, that all tyranny and government are grounded upon popular acceptance, explains why voluntary means are sufficient to attain that end.

ACH (2049) Mallificus Scott And Paul English – The Limeys #106 – Andy’s 50th Birthday Party (Audio 2:10:41)
In today’s show originally broadcast on February 1, 2023, Andy presents “The Limeys” with his co-hosts Mallificus Scott and Paul English for a show entitled, “Andy’s 50th Birthday Party.”
We discussed: how our speech is primarily restricted by the mainstream media in the UK; the background to Andy’s book; how if governments throughout the world were simply incompetent, sooner or later they would make a mistake in our favor; why we cannot communicate with the powers that should not be and how they will never serve the people they claim to protect; how technology has become tedious; birthday tributes from Andy’s listeners, friends and colleagues; the 1996 Port Arthur Massacre in Tasmania; why the British Government stopped publishing their official data of the amount of people who died or were injured after taking the vaccines on December 1, 2022, and how the last figures were a total of 2,362 deaths and 474,018 people injured after taking the vaccines; world events that happened on February 1; The Beatles; The American Civil War; The Outlaw Josey Wales; famous people who were born on February 1; Paul’s reflections since he was last on The Limeys back in June 2021; and many other topics.

‘At War With Russia’, Europe Peers Down The Abyss
Russia is unlikely to take the bait: It has the real strategic advantage in all areas of engagement with the Ukrainian forces.
There is too much ‘noise’ in the system, and it is obscuring the view. Davos has always been ‘weird’. But this year, the kookier aspects were so obvious. The WEF is dying on the vine. The ‘vision’ seems ever more fantastical, and the hubris – inherent in the ‘behavioural conditioning’ to make people make the ‘right choices’ – stands naked. The schism between life, as experienced in the round, and the WEF’s bleak prescription, has never been more stark. The gap will only widen as sharply falling living standards focus the great majority on immediacy and family survival. One may dismiss this happening as a curiosity. But that would be wrong. The Davos vessel may have struck a large credibility iceberg, but it has not yet sunk. Rather, the fact of Davos sinking into creepy idiosyncrasy is significant – highly significant.

Clayton Morris Interviews Colonel Douglas Macgregor (21:16)

Madness Is Infectious: There Is An Epidemic Of It
Several doctors have recently spoken out about the fake pandemic and the toxic covid jab – but they haven’t said anything that hasn’t been already said (in some cases years ago). More significantly they have remained anonymous. Any comments or revelations which come from anonymous sources are worthless and must, I’m afraid, be assumed to have been fed to us by the CIA or the 77th Brigade. The cowardice of doctors who have refused to speak out openly constantly amazes me. Yes, it’s true that speaking out is damaging. Yes, it can wreck your career. Yes, you’ll get hammered by the establishment. But people are being killed by being given a deadly jab that doesn’t do what it is supposed to do – but which does kill people. Those with something to say should realise that if they speak out openly their words will be valuable. Doctors who speak anonymously are as cowardly as the ones who say nothing; their words are worthless and of no more value than the usual drivel from the trolls who inhabit the deep, dark corners of social media. I’m sorry, but that’s the way it is. If doctors who kept silent had spoken out three years ago, and had the courage to identify themselves, they might have helped prevent the greatest outrage in history. Into the same category must go those drug company executives who worked in the industry for decades and then suddenly discovered that their company is crooked. What the hell took them so long? Pfizer and other big drug companies have, for years, been as rotten as three month old fish.

Pfizer Reports $100 Billion Haul, With Vast Majority Of Profits Looted From US Taxpayers
mRNA experimental injection company reaps benefits of public-private corruption.
It is the most expensive “free” product of all time. The Dossier is a reader-supported publication. To receive new posts and support my work, consider becoming a free or paid subscriber. Pfizer colluded with the federal government to siphon off $100 billion dollars from the American taxpayer last year, in filings announced Tuesday by the drugmaker. $31 billion of that massive haul amounted to pure profit, which was up 43% from 2021. Almost $57 billion of those dollars came directly from grants delivered by the U.S. government for the mRNA shots and Pfizer’s Paxlovid horse pills, the Covid-19 “treatment” best known for its “Paxlovid Rebound” side effects.

Holding Children For Ransom: Parents Losing Children Because They Cannot Pay Foster Care Bills For Other People To Take Care Of Their Children
Is there anything more ridiculous than the fact that our nation’s messed up child trafficking system called “foster care” provides funding and training for prospective foster and adoptive parents to take care of other people’s children, but that same funding is not available for the biological family to keep their own children? Yes, there is something even more ridiculous, and amazingly, NPR brought this to the attention of the public. In some states, if the state takes away your children and puts them into foster care, they require the biological parents to help pay for the foster parents to take care of their children. And if they don’t pay this ransom to the state, they lose their parental rights and never see their children again. That’s called “kidnapping for ransom,” and it is happening under the color of the law in 12 states.

Elucidating Gonzalo Lira On Race Riots In America
Gonzalo Lira did a video recently on the race riots he sees coming to America this Spring. I want to go a bit deeper. True, we can expect the usual suspects at ANTIFA and BLM (Black Lives Matter) funded by billionaires. He mentioned the recent murder of a Black motorist by 5 Black police officers in Memphis. I would add that quota cops can be just as dangerous as quota engineers, lawyers and professors. Gonzalo sees World War III as the collapse of the American Empire. I recently wrote that Putin said Nyet to WW III when he announced the creation of an Army that the whole of NATO could not touch. He is upgrading to the S-500 air defense system. By comparison the US Patriot system is highly inferior to the Soviet S-300 of the late 1970s.

Incentivizing Censorship
A Snitch in Every Skull Anti-war academic Dr. TJ Coles is at the center of two raging controversies over freedom of speech – and one overarching assault on human rights
An informational iron curtain is coming down across the West, and its architects are determined to make examples out of those who refuse to pick a side. Our Democracy has adopted a zero-tolerance policy for pollution of the information ecosystem, and the Thought Police are standing by to halt rogue infodemics in their tracks, lest the people lose trust in their institutions. Dr Tim Coles, a freelance writer and postdoctoral researcher until recently at the University of Plymouth didn’t realize he was in their crosshairs until he found himself locked out of his university email account in October. Tech support was no help; department staff refused to talk to him, closing ranks and sending him a threatening email demanding he cease contact. Clearly, he had violated some unwritten law. But what?

Congressman Thomas Massie Obliterates Vaxx Mandate Against Healthcare Workers
There is literally no valid argument to mandate ANYONE, especially healthcare workers.
The House of Representatives is very different than it was a year ago. Back then, any notion of ending vaccine mandates was shuffled into a memory hole. Anyone who opposed them was dismissed as an anti-vaxxer. Today, we may be seeing progress. Finally. On Tuesday, Congressman Thomas Massie gave a speech explaining the reasons the vaccine mandate against healthcare workers must end. “I rise in support of this resolution because it would facilitate the passage of HR 497, the Freedom for Healthcare Workers Act,” he said. “What does that bill do? It ends the unscientific, illogical, immoral, unconstitutional, unethical vaccine mandate on healthcare workers that is predicated on lies.”

FDA Adviser Inadvertently Confirms Pfizer Is Doing Gain-of-Function Research
They’re starting to come now – the ‘debunkings’ of the Pfizer undercover video sting, in which executive Jordon Trishton Walker, “Director of Research and Development – Strategic Operations and mRNA Scientific Planning”, tells his ‘date’ that Pfizer is looking to mutate the virus “so we could create preemptively developed new vaccines, right”. Pfizer released a statement on Friday, which notably did not deny that Dr. Walker works for the company (a fact which has anyway been confirmed via internet searches). Now the latest ‘debunking’ effort comes from Medpage Today.

Artificial Intelligence Caught Lying About Viruses (22:58)
“Viruses” have been used as a cover story for over a century now. There are so many vested interests and smoke screens that it can be difficult to get people to look into the “science” for themselves. They are content to believe second hand accounts from the media, governments and so-called health institutions. Artificial Intelligence or AI platforms have been on the rise recently and millions of people are now engaging with them. We decided to put some questions about “viruses” to one of the most powerful chatbots currently in existence – ChatGPT. Are these platforms independent arbiters of truth or have they already been corrupted? Is Artificial “Intelligence” even possible?

Russia Warns Israel Its Arms To Ukraine Would Be ‘Legitimate Targets’
Russia has warned the Israeli regime against supplying weapons to Ukraine after the regime’s premier Benjamin Netanyahu said he was considering military assistance for Kiev.
“We say that all countries that supply weapons (to Ukraine) should understand that we will consider these (weapons) to be legitimate targets for Russia’s armed forces,” Russia’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters on Wednesday. Netanyahu said in an interview aired Tuesday that he was considering sending military aid to Ukraine, much to the chagrin of the Kremlin. The United States has recently called for more active involvement of Israel in the protracted conflict. The regime could provide assistance to Ukraine such as the US-backed technology of the Iron Dome. Russia has repeatedly condemned Israeli missile attacks on Damascus and elsewhere across the Arab country, and their relationship is likely to develop more strains amid new developments.

Practical Idealism: The Kalergi Plan To Destroy European Peoples (Book)

Former UK Defense Minister Says NATO May Need To Send Ground Forces To Ukraine
The “domino theory” was once used to great effect in order to manipulate the American public into supporting the Vietnam War, but will the same narrative work to get the west to support World War III with Russia? Former UK Defense Minister Sir Gerald Howarth seems to think so as he uses this exact claim to justify NATO boots on the ground in Ukraine. It should be noted that a large percentage of the American populace and most of Europe have no interest whatsoever in engaging with Russia and possibly its allies in all out war, but the establishment appears intent on forcing the issue anyway. The delivery of NATO tanks and the possibility of longer range missiles will no doubt trigger a wider response from Russia, which will then be used by NATO as a reason to escalate further.

The Other Side Of Israel See Description #10 (2:05)

The Expiry Date Con
The “Best By” or “Use By” date on a supplement label indicates how long a supplement is expected to last before its potency falls below 100% of the listed amount. Homeopathic remedies, spagyric tinctures or any alcohol based tinctures last for years or even decades and generally never rot. I have unique homeopathic remedies that I use again and again from over 15 years ago that are still vital and helpful. Labelling laws in some Countries encourage manufacturers put expiry dates on these products when generally, none are needed. The FDA does not require expiry dates on supplements. Rest assured, if you have such a remedy that is past the date on the product, it is irrelevant. Just make sure to properly store your remedies, away from heat, light, damp and strongly scented items, like essential oils. Over time, some of the potency can decrease if proper care is not heeded. This is good news for anyone on a tight budget, you can often pick up discounted items at health food stores that are close to or past their expiry dates. All the manufacturer should need to provide is the date of manufacturing.

Israel Rights Group Submits Objection To US Plans To Build New Embassy In Jerusalem
Adalah yesterday filed an objection against the Jerusalem District Planning Committee over the US’ plan to build a new embassy on illegally confiscated Palestinian land in Jerusalem. Action was taken on behalf of 12 of the descendants of the original Palestinian owners of the land, with the rights group calling on Washington to “immediately cancel” its plans to build the embassy. “If the US proceeds with this plan, it will be a full-throated endorsement of Israel’s illegal confiscation of private Palestinian property in violation of international law,” a letter to the US Ambassador to Israel Thomas Nides and Secretary of State Antony Blinken said. “Additionally, the State Department will be actively participating in violating the private property rights of its own citizens.” These descendants include four US citizens, three Jordanian residents and five East Jerusalem residents.

Twelve Intervention Trials Conclude That Vitamin C Works For Covid
So why are hospitals being prohibited from using it? Everyone knows that vitamin C is important for immunity. Sales of both oranges and vitamin C tablets have risen sharply during the Covid pandemic. Indeed, a review of twelve studies, including five “gold standard” randomized controlled trials, shows that this simple vitamin saves lives when given in the right dose. Vitamin C can prevent a serious Covid infection. The scientific evidence is clear: vitamin C taken when infected can reduce Covid symptoms and duration of illness. So why aren’t we being told to supplement with vitamin C?

US Oil Giant Posts Monster Profit
Exxon’s 2022 earnings set a historic high for the Western oil industry
US oil major ExxonMobil earned $55.7 billion in profits last year, the company disclosed on Tuesday. The figure was a new high for Exxon, whose previous record was $45.2 billion in 2008, when a barrel of oil cost close to $150 – some 30% higher on average than in 2022. According to company CEO Darren Woods, profits soared on the back of recovering post-Covid-19 demand amid energy supply constraints. Exxon’s earnings are believed to be a record high for the Western oil industry, although fellow majors BP, Chevron, Shell, and TotalEnergies have yet to post their 2022 results. According to a recent calculation by Refinitiv analysts, the five supermajors are expected to report a combined profit of nearly $200 billion for 2022 following last year’s spikes in energy prices.

A three-part series.
Part One: How we got here 19th & 20th century—Phases 1 and 2
Part Two: How we got here 21st century—Phases 3, 4, and 5
Part Three: Where we’re (likely) going (2022-2030)—Consolidating Phases 1-5 and implementing Phases 7 and 8.
This is by no means a comprehensive list. Any glaring omissions noticed by readers would be appreciated in the comments below and added post-publication with credit to the commenter. Most geopolitical events, including the world wars, are intentionally omitted. This series was designed to put historical events and sociocultural phenomena into a structure that helps us understand how we arrived at the world we’re living in. If for no other reason than to dispel the deception that we arrived here suddenly and without warning. To most of the western world, who are indoctrinated by public schools and presented a highly curated version of history that are at best benign fabrications, most of these steps will appear completely foreign.

Something’s Buggin’ Tucker Carlson, Food Production Is A National Security Issue (Text and Video)
This is a topic we have covered extensively, and it is great to see Tucker Carlson questioning the sudden alignment of various elements that are creating a very real food insecurity problem.
The #1 factor in the shortage of food production is the newly emboldened ‘western energy policy‘ and the impact energy has on everything from field (fertilizer) to fork (distribution). Other factors include government policy that blocks food development (Dutch, Irish and Sri Lanka Farmers), a sudden uptick in food facilities having major fires and damage, and a series of issues with the feed that goes into the production of proteins. This is all happening as the advancement of insects as a more “sustainable” protein replacement is being advanced by the same western governments. However, if you happen to notice that all of the issues travel in the same direction, you are a conspiracy theorist, or something.

How The Corporate Media Lied About The Jerusalem Settlement Shooting
Last Friday night a Palestinian man in his twenties entered an illegal Israeli settlement in East Jerusalem, opening fire on Israeli settlers after they exited a synagogue and were walking on a nearby road, managing to kill at least 7 and injuring another 10. After ignoring the murder of 11 Palestinians the day before, Western media went into a frenzy to cover what they called a “synagogue shooting”, a disingenuous framing of what truly transpired, in addition to missing all key context while building a completely fabricated narrative around the event. In order to understand any story of this nature, we first must receive context, learn where the story took place, what actually happened, and ultimately who was involved. This is an extremely basic breakdown of some key components that go into reporting on any story and although some details may not be available as a story breaks, a journalist has to do their due diligence. So what happened in Jerusalem?

The Real Disinformation Was The ‘Russia Disinformation’ Hoax
Thanks to the latest release of the “Twitter Files,” we now know without a doubt that the entire “Russia disinformation” racket was a massive disinformation campaign to undermine US elections and perhaps even push “regime change” inside the United States after Donald Trump was elected president in 2016. Here is some background. In November, 2016, just after the election, the Washington Post published an article titled, “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say.” The purpose of the article was to delegitimize the Trump presidency as a product of a Russian “disinformation” campaign. “There is no way to know whether the Russian campaign proved decisive in electing Trump, but researchers portray it as part of a broadly effective strategy of sowing distrust in US democracy and its leaders,” wrote Craig Timberg. The implication was clear: a Russian operation elected Donald Trump, not the American people.

US Denies Involvement In Iran Strike
Several unidentified drones attacked a military workshop in the city of Isfahan over the weekend
The Pentagon has denied that any US forces took part in a drone attack late on Saturday that damaged an Iranian defense ministry complex in the city of Isfahan, in the central part of the country. The statement follows reports that the US and Israel could have been involved. According to the Iranian Defense Ministry, a number of drones targeted a military workshop, but air defenses successfully repelled the attack. It also claimed there were no casualties, and that the facility was continuing normal operations. While Tehran stopped short of assigning blame, its foreign minister, Hossein Amirabdollahian, insisted that “a cowardly drone attack…will not impede Iran’s progress on its peaceful nuclear program.” On Monday, Iranian news agency FARS released footage showing what looked like the debris of several small drones, which apparently carried out the attacks. The video also featured a slightly damaged building at the facility.

Not Today Satan – Mark Houck Found Not Guilty Of Federal Charges Of Obstructing An Abortion Clinic
Early in the morning of September 23, 2022, pro-life activist Mark Houck was awakened by the nightmare of 25 armed FBI agents banging on his door. They gained entry, held his family at gunpoint and took him into federal custody on charges he violated the “Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act. The issue stemmed from an incident in October of the prior year (2021) when an abortion activist confronted Mr. Houck and his son while peacefully protesting. Bruce Love, a 72-year-old volunteer at a Philadelphia Planned Parenthood began shouting at Houck and his son, aggressively in his face. Mr. Houck shoved Mr. Love out of the way, and the abortion industry used the shove to claim Houck committed violence and federal law enforcement got involved.

Global South: Gold-Backed Currencies To Replace The US Dollar
The adoption of commodity-backed currencies by the Global South could upend the US dollar’s dominance and level the playing field in international trade.
Let’s start with three interconnected multipolar-driven facts. First: One of the key take aways from the World Economic Forum annual shindig in Davos, Switzerland is when Saudi Finance Minister Mohammed al-Jadaan, on a panel on “Saudi Arabia’s Transformation,” made it clear that Riyadh “will consider trading in currencies other than the US dollar.” So is the petroyuan finally at hand? Possibly, but Al-Jadaan wisely opted for careful hedging: “We enjoy a very strategic relationship with China and we enjoy that same strategic relationship with other nations including the US and we want to develop that with Europe and other countries.” Second: The Central Banks of Iran and Russia are studying the adoption of a “stable coin” for foreign trade settlements, replacing the US dollar, the ruble and the rial. The crypto crowd is already up in arms, mulling the pros and cons of a gold-backed central bank digital currency (CBDC) for trade that will be in fact impervious to the weaponized US dollar.

Israel Reportedly Behind Drone Strikes In Iran
Israel was reportedly behind drone strikes in Iran last night. FOX News reported on the attacks but could not confirm who was behind the attack. An explosion at an Iranian military facility Saturday evening, which authorities said was the result of a drone strike, comes just days after the United States and Israel conducted joint military drills in the region. Iran’s authorities announced Saturday that bomb-carrying drones targeted a “workshop” that operates for the Iranian Ministry of Defense in the central city of Isfahan, causing some damage. The officials did not disclose what the factory produces and said the attack was “unsuccessful.” …There have been reports of additional drone strikes, including a comment from Iuliia Mendel, a former spokesperson for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. Mehrdad Khalili, the director of IRNA in Lebanon, denied these reports. “There is no truth to the occurrence of explosions in different areas in Iranian territory,” he wrote in a translated tweet. “The only incident is the thwarting of an attack by drones on a factory for the Ministry of Defense.” No person, country, or entity has claimed responsibility for Saturday’s attack.

US Refuses To Call West Bank Israeli Occupied Territory
The US State Department refused to describe Palestinians in the West Bank as living under a military occupation during a heated exchange between journalists last week. State Department spokesperson Vedant Patel brushed aside questions about Washington’s view on the status of the occupied West Bank in the wake of an Israeli military raid that killed ten Palestinians in Jenin. “What is the status of the Palestinian people in the West Bank, including Jenin… and everywhere else in the West Bank?” Said Arikat of Al-Quds newspaper asked Vedant. “It’s a simple question. Are they under occupation?” Patel refused to answer the question despite being asked repeatedly to clarify the position of the US regarding the status of the West Bank. At one point Patel shockingly said that the status of the Palestinians is that “they reside on those territories.”

Excess Mortality Is Not Going Away
As usual, I’ve gathered the following material from a variety of sources. It’s not my point to get into statistical or medical matters as such. The point is simply that, as Dr. John Campbell persuasively argues, something very significant is going on that demands an explanation-but no explanation is forthcoming. In his video (see below), after discussing the disturbing signs that excess mortality may actually be increasing, he concludes by stating-based on the statistical principle of consistency-that the excess mortality stats in the Anglosphere point toward a common causal factor behind the stats. He doesn’t name that factor. Various more or less seat of the pants explanations have been offered in attempts to direct attention away from a very obvious factor. None have successfully fooled the general public-that’s an important aspect of developments. Here, Ed Dowd expresses his skepticism at those explanations, and John Campbell’s analysis suggests that the skepticism is warranted:

musings on the militarization of covid
when (and why) did respiratory viruses become national security?
a lot of very strange things seem to have happened in the west around covid and covid response. not only did we take every piece of evidence-based epidemic guideline that had stood in place for 100 years and toss it out the window, but we then immediately adopted its diametric opposite as “proven policy” and recklessly imposed it in draconian fashion as though his was somehow “the science™.” public panic was pursued as pandemic policy and response rammed down throats as trumped up moral imperative backed by increasingly overt threats and mandates. dissidents were vilified and silenced. disagreement was disparaged and drowned under demagoguery. the party line was as relentless and uncriticizable as it was lacking in foundation. it felt like we were under attack. it was not so much public health as war and as the fog clears we can increasingly see why: because this was done by soldiers.

Kiev Would Be Planning Ethnic Cleansing Against Hungarians In Transcarpathia
Ethnic persecutions have been commonplace in Ukraine since 2014, when the Maidan coup d’état established a neo-Nazi dictatorship that began an ethnic cleansing campaign in the Donbass region, exterminating the Russian population. Now, however, the Kiev regime’s blacklist of ethnicities appears to be expanding. Several sources report that Ukrainian citizens of Hungarian ethnicity are being systematically sent to the front lines of the current conflict. The objective would supposedly be to exterminate the Hungarian population inhabiting Transcarpathia, which raises concerns in the Hungarian government and increases the possibility of internationalization of the conflict. A forced mobilization of ethnic Hungarians from Transcarpathia is currently taking place in Ukraine. According to several sources, Kiev’s officials are transferring hundreds of ethnic Hungarians to the contact zones in the conflict with Russia, where they are dying in large quantities. On January 25, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto confirmed the report and expressed concern about the case. Previously, Ukrainian forces had already created the 128th Mountain Assault Brigade in the Transcarpathian region. This brigade has suffered heavy losses in Soledar and is now suffering casualties at the battle for Bakhmut. However, instead of putting soldiers from different regions on the front, Kiev is apparently planning to send all ethnic Hungarians to fight in the war zone at the same time, privileging the safety of ethnic Ukrainian soldiers.

Decline And Fall
The Seven Stages of Empire, plus fraud at home and war abroad…
Last week ended on a grim note. Americans’ disposable income dropped by more than $1 trillion. This was the second largest drop – since the Great Depression. And the ‘inflation tax’ paid so far by America’s families during the Biden years, totes to $7,400 per household. That is bad news. But who cares? You destroy a nation, first with inflation…then with war. The US elite is working both angles. Last week, it pledged to send 100 US tanks to the Ukraine… prolonging the war… and getting itself in deeper. This was heralded as a ‘game changer’ for Ukrainian forces. We know nothing about military matters. Still, we can’t help but notice a familiar pattern. Just as a summer leaf dries up in the autumn…and the old duffer forgets where he left his car keys…so does a great power become a not-so-great power.

The Dictionary Definition Of “Anti-Vaxxer” Has Broadened
Soon there will be nobody left that does not meet the dictionary definition of “anti-vaxxer”
The common response to any criticism of a vaccine or a vaccine mandate is to yell, “anti-vaxxer,” rather than address the substance of the criticism. Here is a recent tweet reflecting this reality: Even those opposed to receiving an endless stream of COVID-19 boosters based on cogent reasoning are often met with the retort of “anti-vaxxer.” This reality is now reflected in the updated definition of “anti-vaxxer” in the Merriam-Webster dictionary. The old definition included “a person who opposes the use of vaccines or regulations mandating vaccination”: The new definition is “a person who opposes the use of some or all vaccines, regulations mandating vaccination, or usually both”

Karl Lauterbach Admits “Mistakes” As Excess Mortality In Germany Is 36% Above Normal
Is Karl hoping his crimes will be forgiven?
The news of mortality in Germany at 36% above normal, becomes too hard to hide. The never-before-wrong, multiple-degreed health expert and German health minister Karl Lauterbach admits that “mistakes were made.” He does not admit that closing schools was a mistake. He does not admit that force-vaccinating Germans with unproven, deadly vaccines causing 36% excess mortality was a mistake. The tiny error he is admitting is that the schools were closed for “too long.” It gets worse from here. Who does Lauterbach blame for this? That’s right, he blames nameless “scientists”:

MIT Expert On Drug Safety Calls For Immediate Withdrawal Of mRNA Vaccines: “Clearly The Most Failing Medical Product In History, Causing Unprecedented Harm”
Covid mRNA vaccines are “clearly the most failing medical product in the history of medical products, both in terms of efficacy and safety” and should be withdrawn immediately as they cause “an unprecedented level of harm including the death of young people and children”, a top drug safety expert has said. Professor Retsef Levi, an expert in analytics, risk management and health systems at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, released a video this morning where he set out the alarming findings of his investigations and how they have been completely ignored by the Israeli Government. The video was tweeted by leading cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra.

Out Of The Mouths Of Babes
A group of researchers asked children aged 4 to 8 the same question: ‘What does love mean?’ The answers were far more profound and extensive than anyone could possibly imagine. And this broadens our understanding of love, and takes it beyond love-sex between a man and a woman. so: ‘When my grandmother got arthritis, she could no longer bend over and paint her toenails. And my grandpa did this for her all the time even when his hands got arthritis. This is love.’: – 6 years old. ‘If someone loves you, they pronounce your name in a special way. And you know your name is safe when it’s in his mouth.’: – 4 years. ‘Love is when you go out to eat and give someone a majority of your fries without making them give you anything back.’: – 6 years

Department Of Health And Human Services Is Sued After Ignoring Freedom Of Information Request Over Censorship Demands
The Surgeon General has repeatedly called for censorship of “misinformation” online.
Activist group Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for all records and communications between the Surgeon General’s office and social media companies about COVID-19 vaccines. Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit after the HHS refused to adequately respond to a FOIA request filed in March 2022. We obtained a copy of the complaint for you here. The request was for: “All records, including, but not limited to, electronic mail, texts, memoranda, and handwritten notes, of, regarding, referring, or relating to any efforts of Alexandria Phillips, Communications Director, Office of the Surgeon General, to contact any employee of Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, YouTube, LinkedIn, Tumblr, and Pinterest concerning COVID-19 vaccines.”

Syria Blasts ‘Misleading’ OPCW Report On Alleged Douma Attack
The OPCW was revealed to have suppressed findings in its initial report that suggested that the Douma attack never took place
Syria made a statement on 28 January rejecting the report issued a day earlier by the Investigation and Identification Team of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), regarding the alleged use of chlorine by the Damascus government in Douma in 2018. “Syria totally rejects the report released by the so-called ‘Investigation and Identification Team’ of the [OPCW] about the alleged chemical attack in Douma in April 2018, in addition to its conclusions,” the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said. “Those who prepared this report … insist to ignore all the objective information which was provided by some countries, parties, experts, academics, documented media reports, and former OPCW inspectors with knowledge and expertise … which confirmed beyond any doubt that the Douma incident was completely fabricated,” the ministry’s statement added.

14 Dead, 24 Injured In Ukrainian Strike On Civilian Hospital – Russian MOD
The attack by Kiev’s forces on a medical facility in the Lugansk People’s Republic was “deliberate,” Moscow claims
At least 14 people have been killed and 24 injured after Ukrainian missiles struck a hospital in the city of Novoaydar in the early hours of Saturday, the Russian Defense Ministry said in a statement. The medical facility in the city, which is located dozens of kilometers away from the frontlines in the central part of the Lugansk People’s Republic, treated both local residents and soldiers, the ministry noted. It added that both patients and medical personnel were among the victims. “A deliberate missile strike on a known civilian healthcare facility is an absolutely grave war crime of the Kiev regime,” the MOD stated in a Telegram post, vowing to bring all those involved in planning and executing the attack to justice.

Russia Warns Of ‘Full-Blown Conflict In Europe’
The decision by the United States and several allies to supply Ukraine with main battle tanks is paving a “direct path” to a full-scale war in Europe, Russia’s deputy envoy to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) warned. In a statement issued on Thursday concerning the “dangerous policy of the Western Alliance countries to escalate tensions” in Ukraine, deputy OSCE representative Maxim Buyakevich said foreign arms deliveries to Kiev would only prolong the current conflict, or kick off a larger regional war. “The leaders of the US and their NATO client states have come close to a red line. Their deliberate actions to escalate the military confrontation in Ukraine – provoking the regime into military action against the Russian population using Western heavy weapons and NATO intelligence – is a direct path to a full-blown military conflict in Europe,” he said, arguing that all people on the continent “definitely stand to lose” from such a war.

The Pentagon’s Perpetual Crisis Machine
Given President Biden’s decision to send 31 of its top-ranked M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine, it is clear that the Pentagon has decided to escalate its war against Russia. Biden’s decision was followed by Germany’s decision to deliver 14 Leopard 2 A6 tanks to Ukraine. I’ll guarantee you there isn’t a Russian alive who doesn’t know about the time in the 1940s when Germany sent its tanks deep into Russia, killed millions of Russians, and almost succeeded in conquering the country. If the increasing pressure that the Pentagon is putting on Russia does not result in a nuclear war between the United States and Russia, the advocates of this highly dangerous interventionist and escalatory strategy will later exclaim, “You see, we told you that there was never a risk of nuclear war.” But what’s interesting about the Pentagon’s strategy is that if it does result in nuclear war, there won’t be anyone around to point out how wrongheaded it was.

Government IUs Americans’ Top Problem — Poll
Both Republicans and Democrats agreed Washington was worse than inflation and immigration issues
Americans believe the top problem facing the US is its government, a Gallup poll published on Monday revealed. Over a fifth (21%) of poll respondents named poor leadership as the most serious issue, outstripping even inflation, which fell to second place with just 15% of votes. In a rare show of bipartisan unity, 24% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, along with 18% of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents agreed that government incompetence topped the list. Inflation was number two on the mind of both parties — 18% of Republicans listed it as the top issue, compared to 11% of Democrats. Another 18% of Republicans were more focused on immigration, an issue which fell to a distant 6th place among Democrats.

The Eight-State Suicide Pact Is Advancing Quickly…
By the early 300s AD, ancient Rome’s population was in significant decline. Modern historians haven’t nailed down a precise number for Rome’s population— and estimates vary— but the clear consensus is that population peaked in the first or second century AD, and then began a rapid fall. We know the reasons why. Roman citizens were sick and tired of the corruption, inflation, taxes, crime, social decline, constant chaos, etc. and they sought greener pastures elsewhere. Bear in mind that this was happening at a time when the barbarian invasions had already begun. Every year there were more and more border incursions from the Goths, Alemanni, etc., many of whom stayed and settled in Roman territory. This is important to understand; even though Rome was gaining population from these migrant tribes, its overall NET population was still declining. This means that the number of Roman citizens leaving must have been staggering.

Leftist Media Claims Tyre Nichols Death At The Hands Of Five Black Police “Still About Racism”
We all knew it was coming; the establishment media never seems to miss a trick when it comes to making a tragic death into a race conflict. The exploitation of the murdered as a means to gain social influence is a decidedly leftist endeavor. You might even start to think that they want to trigger rioting across the country based on false premises. But that would be crazy, right? Mobs directed by disinformation are a useful weapon for national division. Mainstream media outlets seem to be searching intensely for any new act of police brutality, any new mass shooting, any crime that might fit the bill for their ongoing narrative that America is a “white supremacist nation” that needs to be torn down. Unfortunately for them, the majority of these events in recent months have not involved white police officers, straight white conservative shooters, or any person the fits the woke narrative. They have been left grasping at straws. So, it would appear that the spin doctors are changing strategies. If they can’t find a race based killing involving a minority and white people, they will simply blame every act of violence on systemic racism anyway.
